We were recently commissioned by a Los Angeles based design firm, to create two custom metal sculptures spelling the word "EAT". These are being made for an outdoor installation at a restaurant in Arizona. The client requested that these have a distressed/vintage look. They provided the overall desired measurements and offered a selection of colors to use - and from there our design process began. We first started with making a mockup shop drawing for approval from the designer. Next, we did a life scale drawing and made design alternations to provide a strong structural base. Our production team then began building and welding the structure together. Since this piece was designed for outdoor showcase, we powder coated the finish on the letters, then used a 3 step distressing process to give the vintage aged look our client was looking for.
